to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our lives but keep our eyes open. to make sure if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. the investigation continues. the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to

way to proceed. i do not believe, under the military commission law, that he is eligible for that. it would be unconstitutional to do that. let me say this, chris. one of the great things about america is that we come together at times of trial. i very much regret the fact that there are those that want to precipitate a debate over whether he's an enemy combatant or whether he is a terrorist, a murderer, et cetera. federal law, we've had 435 terrorist convictions under federal law. we've had 100-plus arrests. there have been maybe half a dozen under the military commission. it is really very clear to me that the course that can be taken -- you've got the high value interrogation group. they're skilled. they know how to do this. the miranda right can be read at a later time. he has reportedly been shot through the throat. he's intubated. he can't talk now. so there is time to do the investigation, to make a clear assessment, and to move from there. so i really regret all of this discussion, which is creating a conflict that need not be there. the administration is ready for this. >
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
to the success to the law enforcement investigation. it will be equally important as the city works to reclaim and restore boylston street. we have been working closely with business owners to near the plaza and opening up a mobile city hall close to the area for visitors to have fast a access to the city. also our team has been in communication with the victims and the families who continue to work as we move towards opening the area of boston for our public once again. i want to say to my team behind me, thank you for doing a great job. last week or so, all the agencies and since friday have been working overtime to make sure that the plan works to reestablish boylston street. they have been working under all the plans. thank you. >> heather: you've been listening to a live news conference. the mayor talking about a five-step plan now to reopen boylston street, perhaps the most famous street in america. the area specifically affected when this bombing happened last monday at the boston marathon. let's go to adam housley who is still standing by live for us. i understand you were just in the
penalty, he should face the death penalty under federal law. >> this is just kind of case that it should be applied to. in fact, the only other time it has been used since '94 is on timothy mcbay. given the facts i have seen, it would be appropriate to use the death penalty in this case and i would hope they would apply it in federal court. >> reporter: there is growing evidence today that his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had become incredibly radical. this video of a radical jihadist was posted and then removed from his personal youtube channel. he created it in august shortly after an extended visit to russia. there are increasing questions about how the fbi handled its investigation of tamerlan tsarnaev. they did not follow up after that trip to russia last year. the very latest on the investigation from our crime and justice correspondent, mr. joe johns. joe joins us from washington. joe, no charges today for sure. does it have anything to do with the fact that they haven't been able to talk to him. >> that's an interesting question. you are right. it could be soon for the charges. it
's failure to strengthen gun control laws. >> all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> schieffer: we'll hear this morning from the newtown victims' families. >> my mom was not scared in the halls of sandy hook. they should not be scared to cast a vote to protect millions of people. >> schieffer: it was a week of lows and highs. ♪ sweet caroline ♪ >> schieffer: and we'll cover it all because this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and gps're gbility are argoodmorning, and h boston police commissioner ed davis. i know you told reporters earlier this morning, that you can't speck plate on the motives of these two young men, but can i ask you this-- were they planning other acts after the bombs they set off at the marathon? >> i personally believe they were. i personally believe they were. we have reason to believe, based upon the evidence that was found at that scene, the explosions, the explosive ordinance that was unexploded, and the firepower that they had, that the
law enforcement, of deep concern of ammunition, guns and working bombs these men had. they were so disciplined. >> any indication of another sleeper cell? >> right now, no evidence of a broader plot involving more people here, but law enforcement officials say they can't take that chance. the investigation is full tilt to find that out. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. let's get more on this from our team of analysis from our team, dan abrams, brad garrett and richard clarke. dan, let me begin with you. the question about the questioning of the witness, at least at first he will not be read his miranda rights. >> that's right. you heard pierre talk about this public safety exception. basically the supreme court has recognized that, in some cases, if there's the possibility of an imminent threat that you can ask limited questions without further reading someone their miranda rights and that's what they're saying here, now, down the road, will someone challenge it and say this shouldn't have happened? sure. courts may have to resolve the specifics in this case later. but there is n
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
community and the attacks are impossible for the federal law enforcement community to stop. so how to make ourselves more resilient? the steps we need to take are not that sexy. we need to upgrade our transit systems and infrastructure so as to make them less vulnerable to attacks. for example, flynn notes the u.s. navy has invested more in protecting the single port of san diego that is home to the pacific fleet than the department of homeland security has invest ed in the ports of ls angeles, long beach, san francisco, oakland, seattle, and tacoma combined, upon which a bulk of the u.s. economy relies. we must strengthen recovery in the event of a biological attack, which is still the most worrying threat out there. we need to make sure that the public understands the nature of these threats and how it can help identify and respond to them. above all, it needs to understand how not to respond to them. when bad things happen, it's easy to react out of fear, emotion and anger. let's hope that in boston this week we begin to chart a different course. for more on this, you can read my column
. an arrest has been made. we now have different law enforcement sources telling us different things about whether an arrest has been made and other news organizations are receiving conflicting information. >> we're get. ing some conflicting reports about an arrest. >> i have three separate sources, two that are highly placed and close to the investigation, that have just told me that there's been no arrest and in fact, a suspect has not been identified by name yet. >> a this point, it it appears people who have been reliable sources in the past 48 hours were giving us inaccurate information or getting ahead of themselves. >> and on friday as the older suspect was killed in a police shootout and his younger brother captured in watertown, there were more misfires and mistakes. >> what we've been told is that the word is shots fired. that was the first information that came back here. the second was body found in a boat. many any event the telling word here is body. body found in a boat. >> there was no body. the suspect was wounded, but alive. how should we grade the media's performance dur
and terrorist groups. leven said to hold him under these circumstances would be contrary to our laws and jeopardize our effort to prosecute him. during interviews before suspects are read their rights is often not admissible during the trial. the issue on miranda rights is further complicated because the u.s. is a u.s. citizen. many of the rules cannot be used on americans. live in the newsroom, katie utehs. ktvu news. >>> people are in texas are being allowed in their homes. curfew is still in effect and there is limited water and electricity. many are still trying to learn the condition of family and friends hurt in the explosion. >> it's really hectic, but we are patient because we know the extent of damage on the other side. and we got friends and family that we don't know about over there. >> 14 people died in the fertilizer plant explosion, including 11 emergency responders. 200 more were injured. >>> this weekend, texas is also remembering the deadly raid on the branch compound in waco. 76 people died in a fire twenty years ago following a raid on the compound. waco and west
happened including american support for -- as a law enforcement and intelligence practitioner is inclusiveness in america. as a law enforcement tool, i worried all along when i was in the business that americans would start to say as a result of events like this that there are real americans and other americans. that kind of mentality if we ever get it will accelerate i think these cases of radicalization. kids like this when they take the oath will say i took the oath but i'm still not accepted. >> to what exstent one of the dangers here? one can overread too much. these may be two cases of a bad situation. to what extent might be assimilation machine in the u.s. be broken down or not functioning as well as it used to. in europe, minority communities were excluded marginalized but not in the united states. the polling data suggests that. but does this tell us maybe we should pay attention to that? >> compared to what? the assimilation mod until the united states works marvelously compared to france or germany or great britain. if you look back in history, the irish, the jews,
. pipe bombs, all the ingredients to build more bombs. i guess the suspicion is this is what law enforcement authorities have told me over the past few days. these two brothers if they would have gotten away with it, they were going to do more of this down the road. >> i think you're absolutely right, wolf. it was actually another side to that coin. either they were going to do more and that's what the other explosives were for, or perhaps when we are aware now there was a third pressure cooker bomb. was there in fact a third perpetrator who was supposed to join them on the day of the boston marathon? was that bomb built for that person to put in place at the same time? while we optimistically are hopeful we have accounted for everybody who departed this attack on the marathon, we can't yet rule it out. those other explosives could have other explanations, other perpetrators or other attacks. >> i'm going to bring tom fuentes into the conversation in a moment. where did they get the explosives, where did they pay for the explosives, questions we're going to continue to explore as
owners and residents of this area have played a critical factor in the success law enforcement's investigation and it will be equally important as the city works to reclaim and restore boylston street. we have been working closely with business owners and the city business resource center to set up the park plaza. we'll also open up a mobile city hall close to the area for businesses to have more convenient access to representatives of the city. also a team has been in communication with the victims and the families and will continue to work with them as we move towards opening the area of boston for our public once again. i just want to say to my team behind me, thank you. you're doing a great job. last week or so all the agencies, and since friday, been working overtime making sure we have a plan that works to re-establish boylston street in the city of boston. i'll have rene who's working on all the plans. thank you. >> thank you, mayor. good afternoon. the city has been working the restoration an re-entry strategy for the copley area since last wednesday. a team comprised o
dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals that can contradict at times. now we must step back from the incessant drumbeat of breaking news t
is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death results, then that is a capital offense. the government could seek the death penalty. massachusetts is a state that does not have the death penalty. so the only death-eligible charge here would be the federal offense, even though four people were killed, the government alleges, the three victims of the. bog and the campus policeman. >> okay. in terms of the investigation, where does that stand now? what are the most prom neinent angles that are being pursued? >> these main questions are really the ones that have been true ever since the discovery of who these two people were. and the directions that they're headed in are really going to be the same here for weeks. so the investigation is not going to be, you know, taking sudden turns. the main questions are how and where did they assemble the components of the bomb. how did they buy them? where did they build them? were there any practices? secondly, what happened when the brother, tamerlan, the older brother who was shot to death thursday night, what happened when he went to russia last y
